To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Like many people this Spring of 2020, I needed a haircut and had no where to go. So, I purchased this product and handed it to my wife after it was charged up and told her to cut it like it was cut when I went to Navy Boot Camp back in 1992. So, she tried. She really tried. However, after she was done and after I took a shower, it was pretty uneven on top and I could see that in the mirror. So, I took a second pass at it myself and was able to even everything out in the mirror myself.
I like all the attachments that came with this device.
I did not like how sometimes it felt like it was pulling/ripping hairs out instead of cutting them sometimes. Maybe my wife was going too fast? Hard to say for sure, since it was the first time she had ever cut anyone's hair. So I do concede that it may not have been the fault of the clippers.
I give this product 4/5 stars with the asterisk that perhaps it would have been 5/5 in the hands of a more experienced barber.
Works great. Has a lot of different cutting heads and combs to get you what you want. I gave myself a pretty good quarantine haircut with this after watching some youtubes. Cuts smooth without grabbing my hairs. Even cuts good without a guard, and doesn't hurt or cut my skin. I've used it many times and still on first charge.
Two minor issues that wouldn't stop me from buying:
1) I wish the combs were in barber sizes (i.e. 1, 2, 3...) instead of inches. You can convert them, but there are two size cutting heads, and the sizes I need in combs need different size cutting heads. Minor incontinence. 2) The power button is right where my thumb lands when I am using it. I end up inadvertantly shutting it off a few times each use because it takes very little pressure. I wish this was some place else.
